Creative Uses of Old Nail Polishes

31 Mar

Hello readers! It’s been a long time since I posted something. I had been super busy with my domestic life and taming my troublesome almost-two years old brat 😀 Now I am back to sanity and I hope to interact with you all more often.

Today, I want to talk about some creative uses of old nail enamels. If you are somebody like me who hates throwing away stuff, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this post. So, read on!

1) As an adhesive. No need to panic if you run out of glue. Just apply a thin layer of clear nail enamel on the edges of an envelop flap and seal it easily. Voila! You are done.

2) As paint. You may use old nail enamels to add color to your boring jewelry pieces such as plain necklaces or bracelets or even to your phone case. Just don’t forget to apply a clear top coat for protection and shine. You may also paint your hair pins and clips with different nail polishes for a creative look.

3) As identifiers. This is what I mostly use my old nail polishes for, especially when I am travelling. I apply a different nail color to each lock and key pair so that it gets easier to identify.

4) As jewelry protectants. I am a huge fan of imitation jewelry. Sadly, even the most expensive pieces often last for a year to two before turning green. In fact, sometimes I develop a rash from them, especially rings and necklaces. Now, I have found a simple solution (you may thank me later 😀 ). Just apply one or two coats of clear nail enamel on those parts of your jewelry which are in contact with skin and let it dry. You may also apply clear nail polish to jewelry with small crystals. It’ll prevent them from falling off.

These are just a few hacks using old nail enamels. If you have any other creative use then please share with me and my readers.  

XOXO
